Tarrytown Chiropractor Embraces the role of Back Pain Specialist

When I check into a hotel for a conference, the conversation often goes like this:

Front desk staff: “So what are you here for?”

Me: “I’m a chiropractor from Tarrytown attending a meeting.”

Front desk staff: “Really? My neck is really hurting.”

Your Tarrytown chiropractor welcomes this and could talk back pain and neck pain all day long! Tarrytown chiropractic patients at Tarrytown Chiropractic certainly know this. Your Tarrytown chiropractor welcomes the reputation as the Tarrytown back pain specialist. Being a primary spine practitioner is so exciting and inviting! Tarrytown Chiropractic knows back pain and neck pain, is a specialty clinic for spine pain patients, and is not bashful at all about telling everyone in Tarrytown.

BEING THE PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONER

You’ve heard of the Gallup Poll. A consultant for Gallup teamed up with the Palmer College of Chiropractic for a study that revealed that 78% of American adults would prefer to use a non-drug option over a prescription medication to cope with pain like low back or neck pain. Those same adults thought physical therapy and chiropractic care as quite effective and safe when compared to pain medications. Aaron Carroll MD writes for the New York Times, and in a blog post called “For Bad Backs, It’s Time to Rethink Biases about Chiropractors,” he emphasized how bad the opioid crisis is in the US and that evidence-based non-drug options like spinal manipulation are rational options. (1) Chiropractic identity researchers wrote that chiropractic is seen by society as a profession of health care providers who are experts in spine care as their education, scope of practice, and educational accrediting and testing involve spine care. (2) In one study 61.4% of US adults expressed that chiropractic care was successful in caring for neck and back pain. 52.6% said chiropractors were trustworthy. (3) Tarrytown Chiropractic gets this. Tarrytown Chiropractic grasps that Tarrytown back pain and neck pain patients find relieving help with the Tarrytown chiropractic care and then count on Tarrytown Chiropractic to guide them in other healthy approaches to control their back pain conditions and improve their health and spine to avert future adverse health and/or spinal pain conditions.

BENEFITS OF PRIMARY SPINE PRACTITIONERS

Specially educated to care for patients with spinal disease, primary spine practitioners take on many tasks: diagnose, rule out serious pathology (cancer, fracture, infection, etc.), present evidence-based care like spinal manipulation, manual therapy, rehab/exercise, education about the condition, counseling to help the back pain sufferer accept the condition and its outcome expectations as well as commit to its treatment plan, and organize all facets of care (imaging, injections, surgery if/when needed). (4) It is a big job with plenty of responsibility! It’s truly the job your Tarrytown chiropractor embraces! What do Tarrytown back pain sufferers wants? Consumers want access to non-drug therapies delivered by spine care experts like chiropractors initially. This benefits in a few ways. One is increasing the value of spine care delivery. Two is helping address the primary care shortage. (1,5) Three is lessening the cost of care. (6) Four is possibly reining in the opioid epidemic. The American College of Physicians’ recommendations for back pain sufferers specifically say that opioids are the last option behind non-pharmacological treatment options like spinal manipulation, exercise, acupuncture, etc. (7) Tarrytown Chiropractic is here to do its part to help.
